The California Catholic Bishops Conference has created a Virtual Stations of the Cross asking all of the Dioceses and Eparchies in California to participate. This Virtual Stations of the Cross was created as a tool for (us) the Church to draw attention to the sin of racism, but also in conjunction with the fifth anniversary of the tragic killing in Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, as well as to the June 19th holiday celebrating the ‘end of slavery’ in the United States.
The Conventual Franciscan Novices, on retreat here for their preparation for profession of simple vows, are pictured with Fr. Stephen Coffey OSB, Cam, as the community joins in celebration of the Eucharist.
The National Conventual Franciscan Novitiate requested that Father Daniel be the retreat director for their novices here at Monastery of the Risen Christ June 1rst thru 5th. They are the class of 2020 and may God bless them one and all from Father Daniel and Father Stephen!
